Based in Cornwall, Jill’s paintings reflect her lifestyle and are highly dramatic works with strong brush strokes and emotive subjects.
Jill Hudson decided at the age of 20, having never been abroad, to head to Uganda for eight months to teach English and Chemistry in a rural school. She returned to England, and went on to study Fine Art at Falmouth College of Arts, but the experience left with her a love of travelling she has nurtured ever since.
During the course of her degree she studied for three months at the Accademia di Belli Arti, Venice, where she experimented not only with art but with the Italian language and a creative navigation of the city’s labyrinth of canals and walkways.
Jill has travelled through central and southern America, taking her paints with her. She took up the post of expedition artist in Chile, with Raleigh International.
“There, I was able to capture the magic of the landscape and people in paint and sketches, and also work with the expedition adventurers and staff, exploring with them different art forms and local traditional crafts.”
